On Friday of week 3, Stars CSC was paid a surprise visit by members of the Australian Cricket Team, who are in Darwin for a 3 day game before they depart for a tour of Bangladesh later in the month.
Players, including Dave Warner, Jackson Bird, Josh Hazelwood and James Pattinson spent time with CSC Stars Year 11 Integrated Learning class taking about their pathway through school and into elite sports. Players also answered questions from students regarding playing for the Australian Cricket Team, including how much Dave Warner earns following the issue of new Cricket Australia contracts. Josh and Jackson also tried some local Salty Plum, which wasn’t to their liking.
At the end of the visit, players signed the CSC Stars Wellbeing photo board and presented Stars CSC with a playing shirt signed by the current Australian team. Stars CSC would like to sincerely thank the players for taking time out from their busy schedule to spend time with us.
